Eligibility (70.3% eligible to vote)
New Mexico joined the Union in January 1912. It has participated in 27 presidential elections through 2016, with the results split almost down the middle; 15 for Democrats, 12 for Republicans. However, Democrats have now won 6 of the last 7 elections. This shift is at least partially due to the increasing support of the Democratic party by Latinos in recent years. 2016 saw Hillary Clinton defeat Donald Trump by about 8 points.

New Mexico has 5 Electoral College votes to cast in Presidential elections.
